**PLEASE HELP! HUGE LUMP ON BIKINI LINE, STARTED SMALL NOW HUGE,HARD

I HAVE A LUMP ON THE LEFT SIDE OF MY BIKINI LINE THAT STARTED AS A SMALL PAINFUL BUMP, AND HAS NOW INCREASED INTO A *HUGE HARD MASS* APPROXIMATELY AN INCH LONG &  WIDE... IT IS EXTREMELY PAINFUL AND HARD... IT IS BECOMING VERY PAINFUL TO WALK DUE TO FRICTION ETC.. IT SEEMS TO BE SPREADING ONTO THE TOP OR SIDE OF MY VAGINA NOT ANYWHERE INSIDE JUST FROM THE CREASE OF MY LEG INWARDS... I'M EXTREMELY NERVOUS AS TO WHAT THIS COULD BE ANY SUGGESTIONS? LYMPH NODE MAYBE? I HAVE A DR'S APPOINTMENT COMING SOON BUT AM AFRAID THAT IF IT IS A SWOLLEN LYMPH NODE THAT HAS BECOME INFECTED IT COULD GET INTO MY BLOODSTREAM...
ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
THANK YOU!

I occassionally get swollen bumps there under the skin, that seem to hurt more (a sore hurt rather than sharp pain) when pressed. I used to get large ones when I used to play a lot of soccer.
I couldn't figure anything to help with it other than avoid touching it. I don't know if that is what you have, but if it is, it should go away in a day or two, if left alone.
I hope you get it sorted out and that it is nothing serious.
Nadine.

It sounds like an ingrown hair. I know, you are thinking, NO WAY, it is way worse than that, but seriously, they can be a REAL PAIN! You can take a HOT HOT wet wash cloth and place it on the infected area. Continuing to keep it hot and it will eventually drain out which will releive the severe pain you are experiencing. Or you can see a Dermatologist and he can drain it in his office. After it has drained then you can put an antibiotic cream on it. Try not to wear clothes that will lay in the area. Try loose fitting bottoms and allow air to flow. Just make sure to mention it to your doc at your next appt. because they can come back.

Sounds like a boil. I get ALL THE TIME! I hate them. When they get as bad as you're describing, I have to go the dr and have them lanced. It's immediate pain relief. Then he will give you an antibiotic which also helps it heal. My dr also recommended washing with pHisoderm, in that area. Also if you shave he recomended that I stop, so i only do it if I have to (like wearing a swimsuit, etc). I get mine all the time, so my dr also prescibed me a wash with benzoyl peroxide in it. I would go to the dr if it hurts that bad, and have it lanced. Good Luck!

Can be an ingrown hair or some type of skin infection.  I have had both.  One is treated with an injection of cortisone and possibly oral antibiotics and other is treatd with cortisone cream. Also, hot wahcloths and baths of apsom salt.  Whatever it is, if it getting bigger and more painful it probably isn't going away on it's own.  Call a dermatologist.

I really need advice. I have the same problem. I have a sore swollen bump on the left side of my bikini line. The first 2 days it was small and painful. Now it is huge and very painful. I really don't know what to do but i have a doctor appt. today. I really don't want to check up b/c what if it is really bad or something. last night i couldn't sleep b/c it felt like it was moving inside of me. Now the lump is like 3 inches in length and width. I know it's huge. I had a really small one before but it was neva this big and sore.

It could just be a zit, honestly! I've had them there and they are extremely painful. I get them ocassionally in the heat and figure that lots of washing and ventilation help. The friction of wearing underwear etc makes it much worse. Now that I know what they are, I smother it in tea tree cream and wait till it's ready to pop. Then pop it with everything very sterile. But it's probably better to get the doctor to do it. It's weird as I rarely get them anywhere on my body at all, so why there ever?

i have the same problem!!! Small lump though, on my bikini line. probably the size of a large pea. Bit red. Can cancerous lumps appear in this area? I'm young and cancer doesn't run in my family. The lumps doesn't really hurt unless i squeeze it a bit. it has released a small amount of blood and discharge. can cancerous lumps release discharge ever? thank you

I have huge lump near my bikini line, its not a few little bumps its just one large under the skin bump that is extremely painful. It makes it uncomfortable for me to walk or **** or anything it hurts really bad. Im not sexually active so i doubt its an std, its not a pimple because it has no head to it its just one large lump under my skin. Any suggestions?

Me too!! It's an inch across, I got a bikini wax, there was one hair left after I did it so I plucked it out it was thick & a lot longer than the others the follicle was deep. It looks like a enormous white head but it won't pop the white zit looking stuff out, it's actually a clear oil coming off of it, so it won't pop I poked it, It's in the same spot as you girls too!! it's not ON my vagina but it's on the outside in my crevice on the side of my vagina but in the camel toe are. It's so big when I stand one side of my camel toe appears to be a little longer than the other & it normally matches(not vagina) It's a really hard lump. It's not a white head I don't think because white puss wont come out. It's embarrassing I'm scared to show my husband I don't want him to think it's the herpes or something lol. This happened the day after waxing it was red at first then turned into a white lump! please help please! :( I'm super insecure about it. I've been ritually rubbing hydrogen peroxide & rubbing alcohol on it I don't know if it's working & I'm constantly trying to squeeze the puss out but no puss just a lubricant/clear oil texured liquid coming out it feels really greasy & really strange! I'm sorry about the gross comment but it needs to go ASAP!!!
